    Hi Sherri

    This is only my second post on here. I've been lurking for some time. I'm still in the cult. Great to here that you are in Sydney. I live on the beautiful Central Coast. I used to live in Sydney many years ago. Was born there in fact a long time ago. I hope to be free of the cult one day. Our CO was disfellowshipped beginning of January that sent shock waves through the Congs up here. It didn't shock me because I have resolved that I don't get shocked about anything or anyone no more I've had a gut full of crap in this life.

    Hi all

    I am new on here this is my third post. I really haven't introduced myself. Winston Smith I took your advise and started a new thread to tell you something about myself. I got sucked into the cult at a low point in my life, everything seemed rosey for a while and after I was baptised I began to find out things on the Internet (of course) about JWs that really made me sick ie sexual abuse etc. Anyway I am still active but want to be out one day. I've been in for less than 10 years so I glad I didn't waste my entire life in this cult as many on here have. Glad to see that there are a few Aussies on this board that's great.

    Thank you for the warm welcomes. I actually studied from the early 80's onward. Baptised 1984 Why i left was i got sick and got put in hospital for awhile and only a few from my congregation visited me when they did i was chastied for not being well enough to get to meetings and also i was a curiosity. I had also married into the 'truth' less then a year earlier and had realised i had made a huge mistake by marrying the brother i did.

    When I got out of hospital i left my then husband and tried to pry myself away. And as i guess a lot of you know its not easy. I felt for over ten years i wasnt worthy to believe in a god (at that stage i did still believe it was the truth) Then i found the IB around 2000 and realised that ihad wasted a decade feeling guilty gor no reason. By then i was forty. Discovering all about cog dis etc opened my eyes .

    My congregation was inner city

    I really enjoy this site.

    Once again thankyou
